Engagement of the Agricultural Community in Water Stewardship
Organization: Okanagan Similkameen Stewardship Society
This basin-wide project will improve agricultural landowners’ understanding of how their land use practices effect water quality. Local residents will have an enhanced and broader appreciation for riparian areas and wetlands and their function on the landscape. This project will result in agriculturalists adopting standards, best practices and adhering to guidelines that maintain and improve water quality through wetland and riparian area stewardship.
